Cool New Featurette For Ron Howard’s Formula One Movie ‘Rush’
Ron Howard has been busy filming his new movie ‘Rush,’ about a world champion Formula One racer James Hunt and his rivalry with fellow driver Niki Lauda. Now there’s a brand new featurette on the movie that stars Chris Hemsworth, Daniel Bruhl, Olivia Wilde and Christian McKay is now online.
Howard has been all over Europe for the movie, filming in Donington Park, Crystal Palace, Brands Hatch, Snetterton and Cadwell Park. Howard is incorporating real race footage into the movie, including the Nurburgring crash in 1976, and it looks exciting whether you’re a Formula One fan or not.
Universal hopes to have the film out sometime in 2013. Hans Zimmer is providing the score while Howard works long hours with his editor Dan Hanley on the ‘blink and you’ll miss it’ action in the film. The synopsis is below:
Set against the 1970′s golden age of Formula 1 racing, “Rush” portrays the fast-paced and exhilarating true story of two of the greatest rivalries the sport has ever witnessed – that of James Hunt (Chris Hemsworth) and Niki Lauda (Daniel Brühl) and their illustrious Formula 1 racing teams, McLaren and Ferrari. A privileged, charismatic and handsome English playboy, Hunt could not be more different from his reserved and methodical opponent, Austrian born Lauda. “Rush” follows their personal lives both on and off the track and charts their rivalry from its inception in Formula 3. Here they competed viciously against each other until Lauda’s business acumen and surgeon like precision behind the wheel propelled him all the way to Formula 1; eventually landing him the number one spot at Ferrari. However it was not long before rambunctious golden boy Hunt fought his way into Formula 1, and into the hearts of a nation, dramatically seizing the championship from Lauda and proving to the critics, and more importantly himself, that there was real substance beneath the stylish exterior.
